I am delighted to introduce you to Our Lady’s High School. Our school is a successful, inclusive and forward looking Roman Catholic comprehensive which takes in a wide area of Cumbernauld and surrounding localities.
As a Catholic school, Gospel values underpin all that we do. Our work is based on values of trust, respect, equality and fairness, with the clear goal being providing the best learning experiences and opportunities for all of our young people.
In Our Lady’s High School we have a shared vision among staff, pupils and parents which aims to provide all our learners with the opportunity to succeed, in academic areas or in their own wider achievement. Our Vision for Excellence necessitates that our Teaching and learning, curriculum, learners’ experiences and opportunities for personal development are of the highest quality. As a school we have a culture where learners and staff have the highest expectations of themselves at all times. For our young people, this is reflected in their uniform, effort, positive behaviour and success in and across the school.
Through our curriculum, we meet the needs of all our learners. We provide opportunities for our young people through four contexts of learning – in the classroom, through wider achievement, by involvement in the life of the school and through well planned interdisciplinary learning.
In Our Lady’s High School it is important to us that we know our learners and their families well, and support them in all aspects of their education throughout their time as part of our school community. Meeting needs of learners is ensured by our robust tracking processes and the very positive partnership we have with parents and carers.
We have strong partnerships with local colleges and businesses to ensure that appropriate opportunities are available to our learners, and to enable all of our learners to be prepared for the world beyond school. Our learners are fully supported to ensure they have a positive destination post school, whether that be university, college or the work of work.
Our young people are key to everything we do in this school. They are hugely successful in a wide range of areas, not least of which is academic attainment, which is an area where the school is particularly strong.
